Service description


Description

The "URL Shortener" service is a service that provides a second, usually shorter, automatically generated alternative URL for any URL of existing Web pages.

If you add a plus sign ("+") at the end of the short URL, you will receive statistics about the use of the shortened URL, e.g. the number of hits.

For example, the URL https://www.ethz.ch/services/de/it-​services/katalog.html as http://u.ethz.ch/lBQCF has been shortened. Statistics can thus be reviewed via the URL http://u.ethz.ch/lBQCF+.

Customer Benefits

This also means users can publish URLs on print media, posters and videos that are easier to write down.

Customer Groups / Cost / Order
